台北圓山大飯店 August 16, 2016

三,四十年前,圓山飯店是臺灣旅館(臺灣人叫旅館’飯店’)的標杆,是一個具有代表性的建築物。我小的時候就覺得它高高在上,遙不可及,根本沒有錢住這種高級的飯店。

後來,臺灣變得富有了,觀光客也多了,許多高級飯店在台北各地如雨後春筍一般的蓋起來。一個比一個漂亮,一個比一個高級。圓山飯店雖然還是高高在上,可是它已經沒有以前金碧輝煌的外表了。

後來圓山飯店經過裝修,慢慢的恢復了以前的光彩。我們最近常常回臺灣可是從來沒有想過去住圓山飯店。這一次,我們異想天開決定試一試。

US government bought by money August 16, 2016

It is simply unconcievable that the US government at the highest level can be bought if you have money. Enough money that is; like billions.


This is corruption American style.

So what else are rich people doing to undermind the world peace? What else are rich people doing to benefit their pockets?

不好吃。實在不好吃。

今天早上我們發騷,在台北圓山飯店叫 Room Service。

非常準時。八點半沒超過一分鐘。不錯,值得稱讚。

叫的東西也沒有出錯:一客美國早餐-two eggs over easy, ham, fruit, pastries,coffee with milk(not cream,) an Omelet with green pepper, onion, mushroom and diced ham. I also ordered a side order of vegetables。

It came to 新臺幣$1,210。Not cheap.

Everything looked good, white tablecloth, silverware and chopsticks, salt and pepper.shskers and cream for coffee, except the.ham, the omelet, coffee, and pastries all tasted awful. I am sorry but there is simply no other way to describe it.

If you stay at the Grand Hotel, by all means enjoy your stay. But, don’t order what I ordered.

台北復興 SOGO Level B2

This is a new concept shop, for Taipei at least, by the world renownded chef Joel Robuchon.

The trendy dessert shop, less than 200 sq feet in size, is small compared to other eateries on the same floor of the SOGO department store at the intersection of 忠孝東路 and 復興南路 in Taipei.

We noticed the new shop right away when we came back to Taipei a couple of months ago and I couldn’t resist the temptation to try the beautiful hand-crafted, bite-size desserts.

We could only manage one piece because we just had a big meal from a restaurant near by. We quickly decided on the one we both liked, the Tarta au Citron, and asked the young girl to pack it up for us.

She carefully picked one from the case, put it in a paper box completed with a small piece of dry ice and told us not to leave it out for more than 20 minutes.

We quickly went back to our hotel which was about 10 minutes away, unpacked the box and started enjoy the dessert right away over a cup of coffee.


The rich citrus-flavored glaze looked so elegant and luscious that we almost didn’t want to eat it. Well, we couldn’t just let this $5 piece of art goes to waste either. 

In the end, the dessert tasted just as wonderful as it looked. We sure will try the others, Rubis looked especially good, once we feel less guilty about eating something we shouldn’t eat for fear of 三高。
